A warm welcome to Brockmoor Primary School from the School Governors.
We would like to explain what School Governors do, and how we work with the Head teacher.
The Governing Body has six members including Parent Governors (elected by pupil parents) the Head teacher, a Staff Governor (elected by staff members) and Governors drawn from the local community. We meet at least once a term. Governors expect to spend in the region of 5-8 hours each month on School governance.
The Governing Body has an important role.
Governors have three basic responsibilities :
educational performance of the School and its pupils in an effective and inclusive way
How Governors work with the Head teacher and senior leaders
We are not involved in the day to day management of the School, which is the responsibility of the Headteacher, assisted by the Senior Leadership Team.
The Governing Body's job is to ask challenging questions of the Head teacher and leadership, and provide constructive support to make sure that the School's long term plans and ambitions are fulfilled
Governors robustly hold School leaders to account, in order to guarantee high standards
in education for all our pupils, regardless of ability or circumstances
Governors are responsible for ensuring that the annual budget is balanced. We must also ensure that the budget is adequate to meet commitments for planned teaching and curriculum requirements.
The Governing Body has oversight of the policies which regulate the School, including Safeguarding, Special Educational Needs and Behaviour.
We hope this short description of the work of Governors is helpful. We would be pleased to answer your questions or explain more fully the part we play in the School community. II you have any questions, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
